That mono seat stay is pretty cool, but the really interesting bit is what Specialized is doing with that Horst Link. Concentric BB main pivot, dropped chain stay pivots and short seat stay pivots... kinky! I'd like to hear the thinking on that.

this bike wasn't designed in the last month or something- it's been in the works for at least 12 months (as the spy photos prove). I'm sure the aluminum 650b he has been using was designed as closely to this as possible.

Big bikes? Wow those guys would be blown away if they new about little niche sport called downhill.

Not vories obviously but he's not the one trying to invent something.

Regardless of how great or terrible it rides, one thing is always true of Yeti; they love gimmicks.

EDIT: Apparently people read "gimmick" with a negative connotation. Here's what gimmick means: device intended to attract attention, publicity, or business. Perhaps I should have said "Yeti loves radical, unique implementations of suspension design that significantly differentiate them from their competition." Better?

Stoked to see Nicholi getting some air time. It was apparent from seeing him ride at camp woodward back in '03-'04, that we'd be hearing his name mentioned more in the future, though I wasn't expecting it to be in mountain biking.

So Giant fucked Weagle in the ass so hard that he decided to stop it all. No match for corporate lawyers I guess. It was a matter of time really. You will never win against corporation. They will wear you down and destroy you. Fuck giant!
